Pinguicula hemiepiphytica is a relatively new species from Oaxaca was originally mistaken for moranensis. To us it looks much more closely related to laueana. The flowers are similarly sized and shaped with a long spur and rosy pink. In the wild it can often be found growing on the trunks of trees. Pinguicula colimensis makes an unusual, right rosette that buries itself in the soil. (We always call them cute little onions). This hybrid has a sweetly small and compact rosette with relatively huge pink flowers!
These plants go into a succulent winter phase where their leaves change size and shape; if you order in the cooler months of Nov-March, your plant may arrive in this succulent phase; it will appear much smaller than it will be in full spring/summer growth!
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
Sun: Sunny windowsills or in a terrarium under four T5 bulbs, filtered sun outdoors in the tropics
Water: Sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water from Spring through Summer and in winter they should be allowed to dry out slightly during their winter succulent phase
Temperature: 50 degrees - 90 degrees
Dormancy: no true dormancy but does have a winter succulent phase during which the plant will produce small succulent leaves instead of flat sticky leaves
